Heidenhain’s software and hardware for its contouring control for CNCs and cycle lathes, the ManualPlus 620 control is designed to be compact and versatile and is characterized by its simple operation and programming.

The end-user features now available through the ManualPlus 620 are complete support of the opposing spindle during automatic program generation. Also, the cut-off cycle G859 now permits entering a default diameter at which a pickup device is activated and the rotational speed can also be limited. In the ICP editor, a calculator for fits and internal threads is now offered with the respective input fields for the parameterization of holes and threads.

With this ManualPlus 620 lathe control, the machine builder will welcome its new generation of main computers with more powerful processors and performance reserve for future expansions. Because of the reduction in structural width to 22 nm, the new Intel Celeron processor with Ivy Bridge architecture provides increased computing power while consuming less electrical power. There are also sufficient performance reserves for future expansions of the control.
